It’s day who-knows of quarantine, we’ve all consumed more home-baked banana bread than we could have ever imagined and have become artisans in the craft of bread. Amid this baking frenzy, we must spare a thought for the coeliacs and gluten intolerant, who’s pastry possibilities are infinitely more limited.
But that’s where talented ex Sunda pastry chef Felix Goodwin comes in, having championed the opening of The Hotel Windsor gluten-free kitchen that’s offering an array of gluten-free baked treats straight from its convenient inner-city locale.
As of now, you can find gluten-free chocolate and hazelnut babka, choc chip cookies, brioche loafs and classic cinnamon donuts on the menu, but word is they’ll be expanding into sourdough and even pasta up for grabs in time.
While this foray into gluten-free territory is relatively new for The Hotel Windsor, the reputation speaks for itself by bringing premium high tea to the city of Melbourne for over a hundred years.
You can choose from in-store collection or have your goodies brought straight to your door by opting for delivery, which currently spans up to 15km from the CBD.
